Foles: Plenty of offense without Jackson


Nick Foles prefers to focus on which players will be performing along with him.

Foles misses wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but he's also not a member of the Philadelphia Eagles anymore.

"We'll have guys step up," the Eagles quarterback told CSNPhilly.com. "We have Mac (Jeremy Maclin) back, which is exciting. We'll see what happens in the draft coming up and we also have guys coming in that they've got to step in and make plays. DeSean is a great receiver. He's very talented. He's unique in how he's so fast and can get open and things like that. He's a hard guy to replace, but we'll have someone step in and do a great job in their own way."

Even without Jackson's 82 receptions, 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns, Foles expects the offense to keep on churning in 2014.

"It's just not going to be No. 10. It's going to be someone else stepping in," Foles said. "We're going to be doing our offense, doing what we do. I expect the same plays we made last year, I expect to run those plays again. Obviously, defenses will be able to study that and come out with a plan, but I expect my receivers to make plays when they're out there."

Riley Cooper and Maclin are the leading returning wide receivers and All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy is also back to guide the offense.

"Coop had a great year and then they couldn't double DeSean," Foles said. "And then if they want to double both guys, well then you got LeSean McCoy running the ball and if I keep it as well we'll get some yards."
